Did you know that salt marshes are commonly used to reconstruct local sea-level changes?
How are rocky coasts surveyed and why do they matter?
Are areas with larger tidal ranges more likely to flood?
Coastal flood risk is usually determined according to mean sea-level. However, changes in storminess can also impact coastal flooding.
Coastal dunes, which are present along many coastlines, likely contain accumulations of litter that can enter the marine environment.
More accurate predictions of future sea-level changes can help avoid unnecessary damage to coastal communities and infrastructure.
